ings, structures and improvements owned by it and

to except from the operation this covenant any 
such buildings, structure and improvements and 
any such fixtures therein to the extent that the 
same are ovraed by others or that the option or 
obligation to maintain or repair the same is vested 
in lessees and licensees by virtue of leases and 
licenses) in such repair, working order and condi- 
tion, and will from time to time make or cause to 
be made such needful and proper repairs and re- 
placements, that the efficiency and desirability of 
the respective parts of the property mortgaged 
under this Indenture for the best uses from time 
to time available wall be maintained. 

If at any time or from time to time the President 
of the Board shall certify to the Trustee that any

tee, substantiating and corroborating such certifi-

Section 3. The City and the Board covenant

provements located on the respective mortgaged

usually insured, under sound commercial practice, 
to the full insurable value thereof, in a responsible 
insurance company or companies satisfactory to 
the Trustee, against destruction or damage by fire; 
provided, however, that where the mortgaged prop- 
erty or any part thereof, at the time of execution 
hereof, is occupied by a lessee under a lease which 



August 14, 1934 



SPECIAL MEETING 



2647 



obligates the lessee to keep the demised property- 
insured, the City and Board shall be under no 
obligation to cause insurance to be kept on or with 
respect to such properties except as provided in 
such lease. The Board will, however, enforce all 
agreements and/or covenants with lessees and 
licensees in respect to the carrying of insurance on 
any part of the mortgaged property and will take 
any necessary action at law or in equity for such 
purpose. The insurance policies shall be exhibited 
to the Trustee from time to time upon its request. 
In the event that all or any part of the mortgaged 
property shall be destroyed or damaged at any time 
by fire, or any other cause whatsoever and the Board 
elects to reconstruct or repair the same, the Board 
will begin such work of repair or reconstruction 
promptly after such loss or damage shall occur and 
will continue and properly complete the same as 
speedily as possible and will pay or cause to be 
paid all costs or expenses in connection therewith 
so that the same shall be so completed and the 
property be free and clear of all mechanics' and 
other liens and claims. The proceeds of all such 
policies, except to the extent otherwise required 
by provisions of leases covering parts of the mort- 
gaged property, shall be paid to the Trustee, and 
shall be held by it as additional security for said 
Bonds until paid out by it as herein provided. If 
the proceeds received by reason of any such loss 
shall not exceed $25,000.00 and the Board shall 
notify the Trustee in writing that it desires to re- 
pair or reconstruct the damaged or destroyed por- 
tion of the property, such proceeds shall be paid 
over by the Trustee to or upon the order of the 
Board upon its written request, and the Board 
covenants and agrees to apply such proceeds to 
the repair or reconstruction, as aforesaid, of the 
damaged or destroyed portion. If the proceeds re- 
ceived by reason of any such loss shall exceed 
$25,000. 00, and the Board shall notify the Trustee 
in writing that it desires to repair or reconstruct 
the damaged or destroyed nortion of the property, 
the same shall also be used as aforesaid solely for 
the repair or reconstruction of the damaged or 
destroyed portion, and such proceeds shall be paid 
out by the Trustee from time to time to or upon 
the order of the Board but only upon receipt by the 
Trustee of (1) the written request of the Board, 
executed by its President and Secretary specify- 
ing that certain expenditures have been made or 
indebtedness incurred in reTiairinsr or reconstruct- 
ing the portion so damasred or destroyed, and re- 
questing the payment by the Trustee to or upon 
the order of the Board of an amount not in excess 
of such expenditures or indebtedness. (2) a certifi- 
cate signed by an engineer satisfactory to the 
Trustee that the proceeds of the insurance received 
by the Trustee, together with any other moneys 
then held bv the Board or the Trustee, available 
for such purposes, will be sufficient to complete 
such repair or reconstruction, and (3) an opinion 
of counsel satisfactory to the Trustee that the in- 
terest of the Citv of Chicaeo in the property in 
question is free of all liens and incumbrances prior 
to or on a parity with the lien of this Indenture. 

Any amounts held by the Trustee and remaining 
after the completion of and payment for such re- 
pairs or reconstruction and any proceeds of insur- 
ance which the Board shall advise the Trustee are 
not to be used to repair, reconstruct, or replace 
the damaged property shall be added to the Bond 
Service Fund hereinafter referred to. 

There shall be deposited with the Trustee at 
such reasonable times as it may request, and at 
least once in each year without any request, a de- 



tailed statement of all insurance on the mortgaged 
property effected by the Board and then in force. In 
case the Trustee shall, at any time, notify the 
Board in writing that it disapproves of any insur- 
ance company or of the terms of any policy, the 
Board will forthwith effect other insurance satis- 
factory to the Trustee. The Trustee may accept as 
conclusive the adjustment of any loss or losses by 
the City and any insurance company without the 
necessity of any further action upon the part of 
the Trustee. 

Section 4. Unless and until the Citv or the 
Board shall default or fail in the performance of 
any covenant or undertaking hereunder, the Board 
may, without any release or consent by the Trus- 
tee, alter, remove, sell, exchange or otherwise dis- 
pose of, free from the lien of this Indenture, such 
materials, appliances, tools, apparatus, machinery, 
equipment, fixtures and other movable property lo- 
cated in or used in connection with the mortgaged 
property as may have become worn out or unserv- 
iceable or antiquated or unsuited or no longer use- 
ful or profitable for the Board, provided it shall 
immediately renew the same or substitute other 
property therefor which shall be of the same or 
greater utility or value so that such alteration, re- 
moval or disposition will not impair the security 
of the bonds. 

Section 5. Unless and until the City or the 
Board shall default or fail in the performance 
of any covenant or undertaking hereunder, the 
Board and/or the City may sell any of the mort- 
gaged property and the Trustee shall release the 
same from the lien hereof upon the receipt by the 
Trustee of: 

1. A copy of a resolution certified by the City 
clerk of the City to have been duly adopted by 
the City Council of the City and a copy of a reso- 
lution certified by the Secretary of the Board to 
have been duly adopted by the Board, each re- 
questing such release; 

2. A certificate signed and verified by the 
President of the Board and by an engineer satis- 
factory to the Trustee and so long as Reconstruc- 
tion Finance Corporation shall hold any of the 
Bonds, by a duly authorized agent of such Recon- 
struction Finance Corporation, which certificate 
shall be made and dated not more than thirty (30) 
days prior to the date of the application for such 
release, and shall state in substance as follows: 

(a) That such release is desirable in the con- 
duct of the functions of the Board and will not 
impair the efficient and economical operation 
of its properties; and 

(b) That the Board and/or the City has sold 
or exchanged or contracted to sell or exchange 
the property so to be released for a considera- 
tion representing, in the opinion of the signers, 
its full value to the City in trust for the use 
of the schools and the Board, which considera- 
tion may be: 

1. Cash; or 

2. Bonds, notes or other obligations secured 
by purchase money mortgage on the 
property so released or any other munici- 
pal securities acceptable to the Board; or 

3. Partly cash and partly such bonds, notes 
or other obligations, or any other such 
municipal securities, such consideration 
to be set out in reasonable detail in such 
certificate; and 



2648 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



August 14, 1934 



3. Any money or bonds, notes or other obliga- 
tions stated in said certificate to be the considera- 
tion or part of the consideration for any such 
property so to be released, and, in case any part 
of said consideration consists of such bonds, notes 
or other obligations secured by purchase money 
mortgage upon the property so released, an opin- 
ion of counsel (who may be the corporation coun- 
sel of the City or Attorney for the Board), satis- 
factory to the Trustee, that any such obligations 
included in such consideration are, in his or their 
opinion, valid obligations secured by valid first 
liens upon the property so to be released. 

The Trustee shall be authorized to collect and 
receive any and all payments upon or in respect 
of such bonds, notes or other obligations, whether 
for principal or interest or otherwise or as the 
proceeds thereof and shall have full right and 
authority to enforce or sell such bonds, notes or 
other obligations to the same extent as if it were 
absolute owner thereof. The Trustee shall not, 
however, be responsible for any failure to collect 
such bonds, notes or other obligations. 

The cash so deposited with the Trustee, to- 
gether with the proceeds of all such bonds, notes 
and other obligations received by it shall be added 
to the Bond Service Fund hereinafter referred to. 

ARTICLE FOUR.

outstanding the Board will pay to the Trustee ac- 
cording to the procedure below set forth, all net

erty not heretofore appropriated, such moneys to

ticable, kept invested at all times in obligations of 
the United States of America and the interest, pro- 
ceeds and avails of such investment shall be added 
to the corpus of such fund. 

Section 2. The Board covenants that proper 
books of record and account will be kept in which 
full, true and correct entries will be made of all

tions, relating to the respective properties mort- 
gaged under this Indenture, in accordance with

the Board showing the gross rents, issues and 
profits collected and realized by the Board from 
the respective mortgaged properties during the 
preceding month, all expenses and charges of the 
operation and maintenance of such mortgaged

year, it shall not theretofore have deposited with 
the Trustee as monthly deposits of net rents, is- 
sues and profits responsive to the monthly cer- 
tificates of the Secretary of the Board filed for the 
months covered by such audit and report, an 
amount equal to the net rents, issues and profits 
as shown by such audit and report, it will forth- 
with pay over and deliver to the Trustee the 
amount of any such deficiency.

gaged property or any part thereof, and if such 
action is taken upon the request of Bondholders 
pursuant to (b) above any parts specified in such 
request, except such parts thereof as shall have 
been sold in a foreclosure proceeding pursuant to 
Article Seven hereof and as to which the statu- 
tory period of redemption from such sale shall 
have expired, together with all documents of title, 
leases and insurance policies and such certified 
copies of such other records, documents, books, 
papers and accounts of the City and of the Board 
relating to the property entered which are reason- 
ably necessary to enable the Trustee to adminis- 
ter such property, and may exclude the City and 
the Board, their agents and servants wholly 
therefrom and may as the attorney-in-fact or 
agent of the City and/or the Board or in its own 
name as Trustee and under the powers herein 
granted, hold, manage, operate and control the 
mortgaged property, either personally or by its 
superintendents, managers, agents, servants, at- 
torneys or receivers, and may, out of the rents, 
issues and profits and avails of the mortgaged

be entitled to collect and receive all earnings,

ance and prior or other proper charges upon said 
mortgaged property or any part thereof including 
any advances made by the Trustee and/or Bond- 
holders in accordance with the provisions of this 
Indenture, and reasonable compensation for the 
services of the Trustee and of attorneys, agents, 
clerks, servants and other employees by it prop- 



erly engaged and employed, for services rendered 
in connection with the operation, management and 
control of the mortgaged property, and such fur- 
ther sums as may be sufficient to indemnify the 
Trustee against any liability, loss or damage on 
account of any matter or thing done in good faith 
in pursuance of the duties of the Trustee here- 
under, the Trustee shall apply the residue, if any, 
of the moneys collected by it aforesaid as follows: 

(a) To the payment of reasonable compensa- 
tion of the Trustee, its agents, attorneys 
and counsel and of all costs and expenses 
of its possession and management of the 
mortgaged property; 

(b) To the payment of the coupons (apper- 
taining to the bonds) matured and then 
unpaid, in the order of their maturity, pro 
rata as to all coupons of any one matur- 
ity, and then to the pro rata payment of 
principal of the Bonds if such principal is 
then due; 

(c) To the payment of the surplus, if any, 
into the Bond Service Fund, if the princi- 
pal of the Bonds is not at the time due 
and payable. 

Upon the payment to or the collection by the 
Trustee of a sum sufficient for those of the fore- 
going purposes to which such moneys would then 
be applicable, the Trustee after making such pro- 
visions as to it may seem advisable for the making 
of the next deposits required under the provisions 
of the Indenture, may, in its absolute discretion at 
any time restore to the City and/or the Board the 
possession of the mortgaged property, or any part 
thereof (unless there has been a sale thereof, or 
an entry of an order, judgment or decree for the 
sale thereof in a judicial proceeding for the fore- 
closure of this Indenture with respect thereto) and 
at the same time, or within a reasonable time 
thereafter, submit to the City and/ or the Board 
a detailed statement of all receipts, disburse- 
ments and charges in connection with its manage- 
ment thereof, which mortgaged property, or part 
thereof, so restored to the City and/or the Board, 
shall thenceforth be subject to this Indenture as 
if such entry had not been made. 

The City and the Board covenant and agree 
that in the event of the Trustee's taking posses- 
sion of said premises, or any part thereof, they 
and each of them will execute, acknowledge and 
deliver to the Trustee such further assignments 
or transfers or other instruments as the Trustee 
may from time to time require, as will enable the 
Trustee to collect or receive all moneys and rent- 
als due or to become due to the City and/or the 
Board upon any leases or in any manner what- 
soever, relating to the operation and management 
of said property, or any part thereof. 

The Trustee shall not be liable for any error 
of judgment or for any act done or omitted to be 
done by it in good faith, or for any mistake of 
fact or law, or for anything which it may do or 
refrain from doing hereunder, except only for its 
own wilful default, it being understood and agreed 
that in taking possession of and operating and 
managing the mortgaged property, the Trustee 
does so without incurring any liability for any 
matters or things except as above provided.

the part or parts thereof which are the subject of 
a foreclosure proceeding in which a decree of fore- 
closure has been entered or a sale had, and re- 
maining in its hands at the time of such sale of 
such mortgaged property, or part thereof, in pur- 
suance of such a decree of foreclosure, may be 
applied by the Trustee to the payment of any in- 
debtedness (including payments due into the Bond 
Service Fund as hereinabove provided) hereby se- 
cured which may be due at the time of any such 
sale and/or found due under any decree of court, 
or in such manner as may be ordered or directed 
by any decree or order of the court before which 
such proceeding is pending. 

Section 2. The Trustee (a) may without any 
action on the part of any Bondholders and (b) 
upon the written request of the holders of not less 
than a majority in principal amount of the Bonds 
then outstanding, or upon the written request of 
the Reconstruction Finance Corporation so long as 
it shall hold any of the Bonds, and upon being in- 
demnified by it or them to its full satisfaction 
against loss or liability in the premises, shall (un- 
less a receiver shall have been appointed and be 
in possession of the property) remain in possession 
of the mortgaged property, or the part or parts 
thereof, of which the Trustee has taken possession 
pursuant to Section 1 of this Article or which are 
the subject of a foreclosure proceeding, and col- 
lect the rents, issues and profits therefrom not- 
withstanding the entry of any decree or decrees of 
foreclosure in any such proceeding or proceedings 
to foreclose the liens created hereby, and notwith- 
standing any sale or sales of such mortgaged prop- 
erty, or such part or parts thereof, had pursuant 
to any such decree or decrees, unless the amount 
bid at any such sale shall be sufficient to pay the 
full amount due under the terms of any such de- 
cree, in which event the right of the Trustee to 
remain in possession shall terminate only as to 
the particular property described in said decree. 
The Trustee (a) may without any action on the 
part of any Bondholders and (b) upon the written 
request of the holders of not less than a majority 
in principal amount of the Bonds then outstanding, 
or upon the written request of the Reconstruction 
Finance Corporation so long as it shall hold any 
of the Bonds, and upon being indemnified by it or 
them to its full satisfaction against loss or liabil- 
ity in the premises, shall (unless a receiver shall 
have been appointed and be in possession of the 
property) remain in possession of the mortgaged 
premises until the expiration of any statutory 
period of redemption from any such sale or sales. 
'T^'^e rents, issues and profits accruing after the 
sale of the mortgaged premises pursuant to anv 
such decree, remaining after the payment of all 
charges and expenses paid or incurred by the 
Trustee in accordance with the terms and provi- 
sions of this Article, shall be applied bv the Trus- 
tee from time to time in partial satisfaction of any 
deficiency reported to the court after such sale or 
in accordance with any order or decree of court. 

Section 3. The power of entry and the powers 
incidental thereto as herein provided for may be 
exercised as often as occasion therefor shall arise, 
and their exercise shall not suspend or modify any 
other right or remedy hereunder. 

ARTICLE SEVEN 

Defaults and Remedies of Trustees and 
Bondholders. 
Section 1. If any one or more of the following 
events shall happen, that is to say: 



(a) Default shall be made in the payment of any 
interest on any of the Bonds when the same 
shall become due and payable as therein ex- 
pressed and such default shall continue for 
a period of sixty (60 days; or 

(b) Default shall be made in the payment of 
the principal of any of the Bonds at matu- 
turity; or 

(c) Default shall be made in the payment or de- 
posit into the Tax Fund and /or the Bond 
Service Fund of the aggregate, required by 
Article Five hereof, of the amounts to be 
deposited in such funds when and as such 
payments or deposits are required; 

then in any such event without any notice whatso- 
ever the Trustee (a) may without any action on 
the part of Bondholders, and (b) upon the 
written request of the holders of not less than a 
majority in principal amount of said Bonds then 
outstanding, or upon the written request of the 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation so long as it 
shall hold any of the Bonds, and upon being first 
indemnified by it or them to its full satisfaction 
against loss or liability in the premises, shall, in- 
stitute such suit or suits in equity, or at law, in 
any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce and 
protect any of its rights or the rights of the Bond- 
holders hereunder as it may deem proper, and es- 
pecially may institute in any manner provided by 
law a proceeding to foreclose the lien of this Inden- 
ture as to all of the mortgaged property or such 
part thereof as shall, in the opinion of the Trustee, 
be necessary to produce sufficient funds to cure 
and satisfy the default or defaults then existing, 
and may obtain under an order of court a sale of 
such mortgaged property or any such part thereof 
free and clear of the lien of this indenture (noth- 
ing herein contained shall abridge the Trustee's 
right to the rents, issues and profits of the mort- 
gaged property during the statutory period of re- 
demption). In the event that upon any such par- 
tial foreclosure, the net proceeds of the sale of the 
property sold shall be insufficient to cure the de- 
fault or defaults existing at the time of commence- 
ment of such proceedings, then the Trustee may 
again and from time to time in like manner cause 
to be foreclosed and sold such additional parcels 
of the mortgaged property as shall be sufficient to 
produce net proceeds sufficient to cure such default 
or defaults. If and when any event of default shall 
occur or recur from time to time, the Trustee shall 
again and from time to time have the right to in- 
stitute upon each such occasion proceedings for 
partial foreclosure in like manner and with like 
effect as aforesaid. 

Anything herein contained to the contrary not- 
withstanding, it is expressly stipulated and agreed 
that (a) the institution and prosecution of any 
proceeding or proceedings to foreclose the lien of 
this Indenture, on one or more but not all of the 
parts and parcels of the mortgaged property, and 
the entry of a decree or decrees, or the holding of 
a sale or sales free and clear of the lien of this 
Indenture as hereinabove provided, shall not affect 
in any manner or to any extent the lien of this 
Indenture on the parts and parcels of the mort- 
gaged property not sold in any such proceeding; 

(b) the lien of this Indenture on the parts or par- 
cels of the morteaged property not sold in any 
such proceedings in which a decree of foreclosure 
has been entered, and such a sale free and clear 
hereof had, shall continue in full force and effect; 

(c) this Indenture shall not be deemed as to the 
lien thereof on such parts of the mortgaged prop-

erty to be merged in any such decree of fore- 
closure; and (d) such Hen with respect to any such 
part of the mortgaged property may from time to 
time be foreclosed as hereinabove provided, not- 
withstanding any foreclosure proceeding, decree or 
sale as to the lien hereof on any other parts of 
the mortgaged property. 

Section 2. Upon, or at any time after, the com- 
mencement of any legal proceeding hereby author- 
ized to be instituted in case of default, the court 
wherein the same is pending shall, on application 
of the Trustee, as a matter of strict right, without 
notice to the City or the Board or anyone claiming 
under them, or either of them, appoint a receiver 
of the mortgaged property and the rents, issues 
and profits thereof. Any such receiver shall have 
all the usual powers and duties of receivers in like 
or similar cases, with full power to rent said m.ort- 
gaged property or any part 'thereof or any space in 
any building at the time located on the premises' 
herein described for any term, approved by the 
court, and to dispossess tenants, and shall apply 
the moneys collected through rents and the opera- 
tion and management of the mortgaged property 
to the payment of assessments and water rates and 
to the operation and management of the mort- 
gaged property, including reasonable compensation 
for the services of the receiver and of its or his 
counsel and agents, the same to be fixed by said 
court, and insurance premiums for a customary 
period or term of insurance, and repair's and sup- 
plies, and the balance, if any, toward the payment 
of the indebtedness hereby secured. Anv receiver 
appointed under any provision of this Indenture 
mav operate and m_ana<Te such pronerties as com- 
pietelv and unrestrictedly as could the Board prior 
tn such proceedings. 

Whenever any such legal proceedings shall have 
been commenced and a receiver appointed therein 
or otherwise under the terms of this Indenture, 
such proceedings shall, unless a final decree of sale 
sh'^n have been therein entered, be dismissed and 
such receiver discharged as soon as there shall 
have been paid to the Trustee the amounts then 
due for interest and/or principal and/or as depos- 
its in the Bond Service Fund, or Tax Fund, together 
with all costs, expenses, charges and fees incurred 
in such proceedings and on account of or in con- 
nection with such receivership and the management 
of the mortgaged property by the receiver. 

And if in any foreclosure proceeding the trust 
estate shall be sold for a sum less than the total 
amount of the indebtedness for which judgment is 
therein given, the iudgment creditor shall be en- 
titled to the entry of a deficiency decree against the 
Board and against the trust estate for the amount 
of such deficiency and the Board does hereby irrev- 
ocably consent to the appointment of a receiver 
of the trust estate and of the rents, issues and 
profits thereof, after, such sale, during the period 
or periods, if any, allowed by law for the redemp- 
tion of the property so sold and until such defi- 
ciency decree is satisfied in full. 

Section 3. The proceeds of any such sale or sales 
of the mortcraf^ed propertv or any part thereof 
shall be applied in the following manner and in 
the following order of priority: 

(a) To the payment of reasonable compensation 
of the Trustee, its agents, attorneys and 
counsel and of all costs and expenses of 
such proceedings, and of all costs of adver- 
tisement, sale and conveyance and compen- 
sation of any receiver, his agents, attorneys 



and counsel, expenses of receivership and 
all other expenses of the trust hereby cre- 
ated, all of which items, if it shall be law- 
ful so to do, shall be so much additional in- 
debtedness secured by this Indenture, and 
shall be included and allowed in the judg- 
mxent or decree entered in any such fore- 
closure suit; 

(b) To the payment of the coupons appertain- 
ing to the Bonds, matured and then unpaid, 
in the order of their maturity, pro rata as 
to all coupons of any one maturity, and then 
to the pro rata payment of principal of the 
Bonds if such principal is then due; 

(c) To the pavment of the surplus if anv, into 
the Bond Service Fund, if the principal of 
the bonds is not at the time due and payable ; 

(d) To the payment of anv surplus rernainin.-? 
after full navment of the principal of the 
Bonds, if then due. and all interest thereon 
accrued, to the Board or to whomsoever 
shall be entitled thereto. 

Section 4. Nothing herein shall be deemed to 
constitute a waiver of the rights of holders of the

cate signed by an engineer satisfactory to the 
Trustee that the proceeds of the insurance received 
by the Trustee, together with any other moneys 
then held by the Board or the Trustee, available

such repair or reconstruction, and (3) an opinion 
of counsel satisfactory to the Trustee that the in- 
terest of the Citv of Chicago in the property in

after the completion of and payment for such re- 
pairs or reconstruction and any proceeds of insur- 
ance which the Board shall advise the Trustee are 
not to be used to repair, reconstruct, or reDlace

Service Fund hereinafter referred to. 

There shall be deposited with the Trustee at 
such reasonable times as it may request, and at

tailed statement of all insurance on the mortgaged

Board shall default or fail in the performance of 
any covenant or undertaking hereunder, the Board 
may, without any release or consent by the Trus- 
tee, alter, remove, sell, exchange or otherwise dis- 
pose of. free from the lien of this Indenture; such

equipment, fixtures and other movable property lo- 
cated in or used in connection with the mortgaged 
property as may have become worn out or unserv- 
iceable or antiquated or un suited or no longer use- 
ful or profitable for the Board, provided it shall 
immediately renew the same or substitute other 
property therefor v/hich shall be of the same or 
greater utility or value so that such alteration, re- 
moval or disposition ^vill not impair the security 
of the bonds.

Board shall default or fail in the performance 
of any covenant or undertaking hereunder, the 
Board and/or the City may sell any of the mort- 
gaged property and the Trustee shall release the 
same from the lien hereof upon the receipt by the 
Trustee of:

clerk of the City to have been duly adopted by 
the City Council of the City and a copy of a reso- 
lution certified by the Secretary of the Board to 
have been duly adopted by the Board, each re- 
questing such release; 

2. A certificate signed and verified by the 
President of the Board and by an engineer satis- 
factory to the Trustee and so long as Reconstruc- 
tion Finance Corporation shall hold any of the 
Bonds, by a duly authorized agent of such Recon- 
struction Finance Corporation, which certificate 
shall be made and dated not more than thirty (30) 



days prior to the date of the application for such 
release, and shall state in substance as follows: 

(a) That such release is desirable in the con- 
duct of the functions of the Board and will not 
impair the efficient and economical operation 
of its properties; and 

(b)- That the Board and/or the City has sold 
or exchanged or contracted to sell or exchange 
the property so to be released for a considera- 
tion representing, in the opinion of the signers, 
its full value to the City in trust for the use 
of the schools and the Board, which considera- 
tion may be: 

1. Cash; or 

2. Bonds, notes or other obligations secured 
by purchase money mortgage on the 
property so released or any other munici- 
pal securities acceptable to the Board; or 

3. Partly cash and partly such bonds, notes 
or other obligations, or any other such 
municipal securities, such consideration 
to be set out in reasonable detail in such 
certificate; and 

3. Any money or bonds, notes or other obliga- 
tions stated in said certificate to be the considera- 
tion or part of the consideration for any such 
property so to be released, and, in case any part 
of said consideration consists of such bonds, notes 
or other obligations secured by purchase money 
mortgage upon the property so released, an opin- 
ion of counsel (who may be the corporation coun- 
sel of the City or Attorney for the Board), satis- 
factory to the Trustee, that any such obligations 
included in such consideration are, in his or their 
opinion, valid obligations secured by valid first 
liens upon the property so to be released. 

The Trustee shall be authorized to collect and 
receive any and all payments upon or in respect 
of such bonds, notes or other obligations, whether 
for principal or interest or otherwise or as the 
proceeds thereof and shall have full right and 
authority to enforce or sell such bonds, notes or 
other obligations to the same extent as if it were 
absolute owner thereof. The Trustee shall not, 
however, be responsible for any failure to collect 
such bonds, notes or other obligations. 

The cash so deposited with the Trustee, to- 
gether with the proceeds of all such bonds, notes 
and other obligations received by it shall be added 
to the Bond Service Fund hereinafter referred to.

tive mortgaged properties collected and realized 
by the Board for the calendar year then last pre- 
ceding, and all expenses and charges of the opera-

ers relating to the operation, maintenance and 
condition of the mortgage properties will at all

agrees that if at the time of the filing by it of

therefrom and may as the attorney-in-fact or 
agent of the City and/or the Board or in its own

ther smns as may be sufficient to indemnify the

going purposes to which such moneys v/ould then 
be applicable, the Trustee after making such pro- 
visions as to it may seem advisable for the making

any time restore to the City and/or the Board the 
possession of the mortgaged property, or any part 
thereof (unless there has been a sale thereof, or 
an entry of an order, judgment or decree for the 
sale thereof in a judicial proceeding for the fore- 
closure of this Indenture with respect thereto) and

a detailed statement of all receipts, disburse- 
ments and charges in connection with its manage- 
ment thereof, which mortgaged property, or part

that in the event of the Trustee's taking posses- 



sion of said premises, or any part thereof, they 
and each of them will execute, acknowledge and 
deliver to the Trustee such further assignments 
or transfers or other instruments as the Trustee 
may from time to time require, as will enable the 
Trustee to collect or receive all moneys and rent- 
als due or to become due to the City and/or the 
Board upon any leases or in any manner what- 
soever, relating to the operation and management 
of said property, or any part thereof.

of judgment or for any act done or omitted to be 
done by it in good faith, or for any mistake of 
fact or law, or for anything which it may do or 
refrain from doing hereunder, except only for its 
ov/n wilful default, it being understood and agreed 
that in taking possession of and operating and 
managing the mortgaged property, the Trustee 
does so without incurring any liability for any 
matters or things except as above provided.

ment and operation of the mortgaged property, or

closure has been entered or a sale had, and re- 
maining in its hands at the time of such sale of 
such mortgaged property, or part thereof, in pur- 
suance of such a decree of foreclosure, may be 
applied by the Trustee to the payment of any in- 
debtedness (including payments due into the Bond 
Service Fund as hereinabove provided) hereby se- 
cured which may be due at the time of any such 
sale and/or found due under any decree of court, 
or in such manner as may be ordered or directed 
by any decree or order of the court before which 
such proceeding is pending.

it shall hold any of the Bonds, and upon being in- 
demnified by it or them to its full satisfaction 
against loss or liability in the premises, shall (un- 
less a receiver shall have been appointed and be 
in possession of the property) remain in possession 
of the mortgaged property, or the part or parts 
thereof, of v/hich the Trustee has taken possession 
pursuant to Section 1 of this Article or which are 
the subject of a foreclosure proceeding, and col- 
lect the rents, issues and profits therefrom not- 
withstanding the entry of any decree or decrees of 
foreclosure in any such proceeding or proceedings 
to foreclose the liens created hereby, and notwith- 
standing any sale or sales of such mortgaged prop- 
erty, or such part or parts thereof, had pursuant 
to any such decree or decrees, unless the amount 
bid at any such sale shall be sufficient to pav the 
full amount due under the terms of any such de- 
cree, in which event the right of the Trustee to 
remain in possession shall terminate only as to 
the particular property described in said decree. 
The Trustee (a) may without any action on the 
part of any Bondholders and (b) upon the written 
request of the holders of not less than a majority

property) remain in possession of the mortgaged 
premises until the expiration of any statutory 
period of redemption from any such sale or sales. 
The rents, issues and profits accruing after the 
sale of the mortgaged premises pursuant to any 
such decree, remaining after the payment of all 
charges and expenses paid or incurred by the 
Trustee in accordance with the terms and provi- 
sions of this Article, shall be applied by the Trus- 
tee from time to time in partial satisfaction of any 
deficiency reported to the court after such sale or 
in accordance with any order or decree of court. 

Section 3. The power of entry and the powers 
incidental thereto as herein provided for may be 
exercised as often as occasion therefor shall arise, 
and their exercise shall not suspend or modify any 
other right or remedy hereunder. 

ARTICLE SEVEN 

Defaults and Remedies of Trustees and 
Bondholders. 

Section 1. If any one or more of the following 
events shall happen, that is to say: 

(a) Default shall be m.ade in the payment of any 
interest on any of the Bonds when the same 
shall become due and payable as therein ex- 
pressed and such default shall continue for 
a period of sixty (60 days; or 

(b) Default shall be made in the payment of 
the principal of any of the Bonds at matu- 
turity; or 

(c) Default shall be made in the payment or de- 
posit into the Tax Fund and/or the Bond 
Service Fund of the aggregate, required by 
Article Five hereof, of the amounts to be 
deposited in such funds when and as such 
paym.ents or deposits are required ; 

then in any such event without any notice whatso- 
ever the Trustee (a) may without any action on 
the part of Bondholders, and (b) upon the 
written request of the holders of not less than a 
majority in principal amount of said Bonds then 
outstanding, or upon the written request of the 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation so long as it 
shall hold any of the Bonds, and upon being first 
indemnified by it or them to its full satisfaction 
aeainst loss or liability in the premises, shall, in- 
stitute such suit or suits in equity, or at law in 
any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce and 
protect any of its rights or the rights of the Bond- 
holders hereunder as it may deem proper, and es- 
pecially may institute in any manner provided by 
law a proceeding to foreclose the lien of this Inden- 
ture as to all of the mortgaged property or such 
part thereof as shall, in the ooinion of the Trustee, 
be necessary to produce sufficient funds to cure 
and satisfy the default or defaults then existing, 
and may obtain under an order of court a sale of 
such mortgaged property or anv such part thereof 
free and clear of the lien of this indenture (noth- 
ing herein contained shall abridge the Trustee's 
right to the rents, issues and profits of the mort- 
gaged property during the statutory period of re- 
demption). In the event that upon any such par- 
tial foreclosure, the net proceeds of the sale of the 
property sold shall be insufficient to cure the de- 
fault or defaults existins? at the time of commence- 
ment of such proceedinsrs. then the Trustee may 
again and from time to time in like manner csinse 
to be foreclosed and sold such additional parcels 
of the mortgaged propertv as shall be sufficient to 
produce net proceeds sufficient to Qure sugh default 



or defaults. If and when any event of default shall 
occur or recur from time to time, the Trustee shall 
again and from time to time have the right to in- 
stitute upon each such occasion proceedings for 
partial foreclosure in like manner and with like 
effect as aforesaid. 

Anything herein contained to the contrary not- 
withstanding, it is expressly stipulated and agreed 
that (a) the institution and prosecution of any 
proceeding or proceedings to foreclose the lien of 
this Indenture, on one or more but not all of the 
parts and parcels of the m.ortgaged property, and 
the entry of a decree or decrees, or the holding of 
a sale or sales free and clear of the lien of this 
Indenture as hereinabove provided, shall not affect 
in any manner or to any extent the lien of this 
Indenture on the parts and parcels of the mort- 
gaged property not sold in any such proceeding: 

(b) the lien of this Indenture on the parts or par- 
cels of the mortgaged property not sold in any 
such proceedings in which a decree of foreclosure 
has been entered, and such a sale free and clear 
hereof had, shall continue in full force and effect; 

(c) this Indenture shall not be deemed as to the 
lien thereof on such parts of the mortgaged prop- 
erty to be merged in any such decree of fore- 
closure; and (d) such lien with respect to anv such 
part of the mortgaged propertv may from time to 
time be foreclosed as hereinabove provided, not- 
withstanding any foreclosure proceedinsr. decree or 
sale as to the lien hereof on any other parts of 
the mortgaged property. 

Section 2. Upon, or at any time after, the com- 
mencement of any legal proceeding hereby author- 
ized to be instituted in case of default, the court 
wherein the same is pending shall, on application 
of the Trustee, as a matter of strict right, without 
notice to the City or the Board or anyone claiming 
under them, or either of them, appoint a receiver 
of the mortgaged property and the rents, issues 
and profits thereof. Any such receiver shall have 
all the usual powers and duties of receivers in like 
or similar cases, with full power to rent said mort- 
gaged property or any part thereof or any space in 
any building at the time located on the premises 
herein described for any term, approved by the 
court, and to dispossess tenants, and shall apply 
the moneys collected through rents and the opera- 
tion and management of the mortgaged property 
to the payment of assessments and water rates and 
to the operation and management of the mort- 
gaged property, including reasonable compensation 
for the services of the receiver and of its or his 
counsel and agents, the same to be fixed by said 
court, and insurance premiums for a customary 
period or term of insurance, and repairs and sup- 
plies, and the balance, if any, toward the payment 
of the indebtedness hereby secured. Any receiver 
appointed under any provision of this Indenture 
mav operate and m.anage such properties as com- 
pletelv and unrestrictedly as could the Board prior 
to such proceedings. 

Whenever any such legal proceedings shall have 
been commenced and a receiver appointed therein 
or otherwise under the terms of this Indenture, 
such proceedings shall, unless a final decree of sale 
sh'nil have been therein entered, be dismissed and 
such receiver discharged as soon as there shall 
have been paid to the Trustee the amounts then 
due for interest and/or principal and /or as deposits 
in the Bond Service Fund or Tax Fund, together 
with all costs, expenses, charges and fees incurred 
in such proceedings and on account of or in connec- 
tion with such receivership and the managenient of 
the mortgaged property by the receiver.

therein given, the judgment creditor shall be en- 
titled to the entry of a deficiency decree against the 
Board and against the trust estate for the amount 
of such deficiency and the Board does hereby irrev- 
ocably consent to the appointment of a receiver 
of the trust estate and of the rents, issues and

and counsel, expenses of receivership and 
all other expenses of the trust hereby cre- 
ated, all of which items, if it shall be law-

gaged property and the entire amount of the taxes

factory to the Truste^ against the cost, expenses 
and liabilities to be incurred therein or thereby; or 
unless the Trustee shall have refused or neglected 
to act on such notice, request and indemnity; and 
such notification, request and offer of indemnity 
are hereby declared, in every case at the option of 
the Trustee, to be conditions precedent to the exe- 
cution of the powers and trusts of this Indenture 
and to the availability and the commencement and 
prosecution of any action or suit hereunder, 
whether for foreclosure or for the appointment of 
a receiver or for any other remedy; and no one or 
more holders of Bonds or coupons shall have any 
right in any manner whatever to affect, disturb or 
prejudice the lien of this Indenture by his or their 
action, or to enforce any right hereunder, except 
in the manner herein provided, and all proceedings 
hereunder, at law or in equity, shall be instituted, 
had and maintained in the manner herein provided 
and for the equal benefit of all holders of such 
outstanding Bonds and coupons. 

Nothing in this Section or elsewhere in this In- 
denture or in the Bonds or in the coupons attached 
thereto shall affect or impair the obligation of the 
Board, which is unconditional and absolute, to pay 
the principal of and interest on the bonds and to 
make the payments required into the Tax Fund and 
the Bond Service Fund. 

Section 8. All rights of action under this In- 
denture may be enforced by the Trustee without 
the possession of any of the Bonds or coupons 
hereby secured or the production thereof on the 
trial or other proceedings relative thereto. 

Section 9. In case the Trustee shall have pro- 
ceeded to enforce any right under this Indenture 
by foreclosure or otherwise, and such proceedings 
shall have been discontinued or abandoned because 
of waiver, or for any other reason, or shall have 
been determined adversely to the Trustee, then, 
and in every such case the City, the Bondholders 
and the Trustee shall be restored to their former 
positions and rights hereunder in respect to the 
mortgaged property, and all rights, remedies and 
powers of the Trustee and the Bondholders shall 
continue as though no such proceedings had been 
taken. 

Section 10. No remedy herein conferred upon or 
reserved to the Trustee is intended to be exclusive 
of any other remedy or remedies; but each and 
every such remedy shall be cumulative, and shall 
be in addition to every other remedy given 
hereunder, or now or hereafter existing at law or 
inequity or by statute. No delay or omission to 
exercise any right or power accruing upon any de- 
fault continuing as aforesaid shall impair any such 
right or power or shall be construed to be a waiver 
of any such default or acquiescence therein; and 
every such right and power may be exercised from 
time to time and as often as may be deemed ex- 
pedient. 

Section 11. The Board and the City covenant 
with the Trustee to perform and observe all of their 
respective covenants and undertakings in the Bonds 
and this Indenture. 

Section 12. The invalidity of any one or more 
phrases, sentences, clauses or paragraphs all of 
which are inserted conditionally on their being held 
valid in law, shall not affect the remaining portions 
of this Indenture or any part thereof, and in the 
event that one or more of the phrases, sentences, 



clauses or paragraphs contained herein should be 
invalid, or would operate to make ineffective the 
lien of this Indenture upon the mortgaged prop- 
erty, or intended so to be, this Indenture shall be 
construed as if such phrase or phrases, sentence or 
sentences, clause or clauses and paragraph or para- 
graphs had not been inserted,

porting to be hereby created, or as to the execution, 
acknowledgment, recording, filing, refiling, renew- 
ing, or extending thereof, or as to the title or value 
of the property hereinbefore described, it being un-

edge in regard thereto.

tion to recognize any person, firm or corporation, 
as holder or owner of one or more of the bonds se- 
cured hereby, or to do or refrain from doing any 
act pursuant to the request of any person, firm or

poration does not then hold any of the Bonds. 

ARTICLE NINE.

well and truly provide for the payment of the 
whole amount due or to become due on all Bonds 
and coupons then outstanding for principal and 
interest, by depositing such amount in a manner 
satisfactory to the Trustee, then and in that case 
the Trustee shall, upon written request of the 
City or the Board, convey, assign, transfer and 
deliver to the City and the Board as their inter- 
ests appear all property which may be held by it 
as Trustee hereunder, and all property, tangible 
and intangible, rights and interests hereby mort- 
gaged or pledged, shall revert to the City and the 
Board and the estate, rights, title and interest of 
the Trustee shall thereupon cease, determine and 
become void, and the Trustee in such case, on 
written request of the City or the Board, but at 
the cost and expense of the City and/or the Board,

Commendation of Mayor Edward J. Kelly. 

By unanimous consent. Alderman McDermott pre- 
sented a resolution commending Mayor Edward J. 
Kelly on the successful termination of his efforts to 
effectuate a loan from the Reconstruction Finance 
Corporation to the Board of Education to permit the 
payment of all unpaid salaries of the school teachers. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution v/ithout reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman McDermott moved to adopt the resolu- 
tion. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Dawson, Jackson, Cronson, Cusack, Healy, 
Daley, Sutton, Lindell, Rowan, Hartnett, Egan, Mc- 
Dermott, Kovarik, Moran, Perry, Pacelli, Lagodny, 
Toman, Konkowski, Sain, Kells, Terrell, Clark, Keane, 
Rostenkowski, Kadow, Porten, Orlikoski, Robinson, 



Kiley, Wieland, Hurley, Crowe, Grealis, Meyer, Nel- 
son, Schulz, Massen, Williston and Quinn — 40. 
Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, it has been announced in the press 
of Chicago that the Reconstruction Finance Cor- 
poration, following the recommendation of its 
Chairman, the Honorable Jesse Jones, has given its 
approval to a loan of Government funds to the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago in the 
amount of $22,500,000.00 for the purpose of pay- 
ing long over due salaries of Chicago school 
teachers, thereby enabling the City of Chicago 
and its Board of Education to discharge its ob- 
ligations to the teachers of«its children who so 
gallantly and heroically continued at their posts 
during the most serious crisis with which the 
City was ever confronted and bringing to a suc- 
cessful solution the most serious and difficult civic 
problem which has confronted Chicago in all its 
history; and 

Whereas, the solution of this problem required 
the most intelligent and unselfish efforts of the 
leaders and officials of our city and Board of Edu- 
cation and brought into bold relief the fact that 
the teachers of Chicago have but one interest at 
heart, which is the education and development of 
its children to the end that they may become 
useful citizens of our city. 

Whereas, at the time of the induction into 
office of the Honorable Edward J. Kelly, as Mayor, 
the financial condition of the Board of Education, 
as well as the City of Chicago, was in an appar- 
ently hopeless condition. It became apparent at 
once that there was no hope for financial assist- 
ance by which to pay the salaries of the teachers 
unless the Board of Education and the City of 
Chicago were placed upon a sound financial basis. 
The Mayor, as a first step, caused the Board of 
Education to adopt a program of economy and 
retrenchment, without which the loan would have 
been an impossibility. This step was denounced 
by some as a scheme to "wreck" the Chicago pub- 
lic schools and thereby deprive the children of 
Chicago of their opportunity for education, 
whereas in fact as the event now proves to a 
demonstration, the school economy program, in- 
stead of "wrecking" the school system, has saved 
it for all time; and 

Whereas, it now becomes apparent to all that 
the plan resulting in the loan was originated, 
sponsored and carried through to a successful con- 
clusion by the Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, who in his efforts had the 
sympathetic interest and co-operation of President 
Roosevelt, Senators Lewis and Dieterich, the Illi- 
nois members in the House of Representatives in 
Congress, notably Congressman A. J. Sabath of 
Chicago, the Governor of Illinois and the leaders 
in the Legislature of the State, public-spirited 
citizens and agencies generally, the press of Chi- 
cago, the Board of Education, the teaching force 
itself and its various accredited representative 
teachers' organizations who responded most gen- 
erously to the leadership of the Mayor; and 

Whereas, it is deemed fitting and advisable that 
the steps taken under the initiative of Mayor Kelly 
should be fully set forth because they constitute 
an achievement in civic statesmanship seldom 
equalled in our municipal history, which steps may 
be summarized as follows: 



2686 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO 



August 14, 1934 



First: Mayor Kelly, at the time when the banks 
and other financial institutions, because of in- 
creasing expenditures and decreasing income of 
the Board of Education and tax delinquencies, ap- 
peared unwilling to extend aid to the school sys- 
tem, persuaded the Chicago banks to advance 
$16,000,000.00 to the Board of Education through 
the purchase by the banks of School Tax Antici- 
pation Warrants. This financing was mainly due 
to the program of economy and retrenchment as 
well as the action of the Mayor in inducing the 
Illinois Legislature to enact the Skarda Law and 
the law requiring the payment of 75 per cent of a 
tax bill before objection could be made to the tax 
in the courts, thus bringing in revenue necessary 
for maintaining the schools and other govern- 
mental function* 

Second: Mayor Kelly caused to be introduced 
in the State Legislature and urged the passage of 
a law authorizing the Board of Education to issue 
its bonds in the sum of $40,000,000.00. This step 
was taken despite the fact that certain interests 
scoffed at the proposal, not realizing that it was 
a primary step in the plan to secure the teachers 
their pay. 

Third: Mayor Kelly assumed leadership in a 
successful effort to have the State Legislature 
enact three other important measures, namely: 

(a) The bill guaranteeing the maintenance of 
the school tax rates known as "Peg Levy" 
legislation so that a level of school revenue 
would be maintained; 

(b) The bill providing that the schools should 
receive an additional one-third of the pro- 
ceeds of the State Motor Fuel Levy, thus 

further assuring the schools permanent in- 
come; 

(c) The bill granting authority to the Board of 
Education to mortgage property not used 
for school purposes as security for a loan 
from the Government limiting the proceeds 
of said loan solely to the payment of sal- 
aries of the teachers. 

The above-mentioned steps constituted an es- 
sential part of the plan because the act creating the 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation gave no au- 
thority to loan the Board of Education. 

Fourth: The Mayor gave impetus to the move- 
ment for the Federal loan in behalf of the teach- 
ers by personal conferences with officials at Wash- 
ington, including the Honorable Jesse Jones, 
Chairman of the Reconstruction Finance Corpora- 
tion, and when advised that the law creating the 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation granted no 
authority to make a loan to the Board of Educa- 
tion, Mayor Kelly caused an amendment to be 
prepared and delivered to Congressman A. J. 
Sabath at a conference in the Mayor's office at 
which plans for its introduction and eventual 
passage were determined upon. Mayor Kelly 
brought to this effort his experience of years in 
public life. The act v/as finally adopted and be- 
came the authority under which the Reconstruc- 
tion Finance Corporation eventually approved the 
loan. 

Fifth: Upon the passage of the amendment by 
Congress, important factors in the plan yet re- 
mained to be accomplished. Government officials 
refused to accept the bonds secured by school 
property until the Supreme Court of Illinois would 
uphold the constitutionality of the State Statute 
granting authority to mortgage school property. 



At the suggestion of the Mayor and with the co- 
operation of the City Council, Board of Education 
and the legal staff thereof, an original petition for 
mandamus was filed in the Supreme Court of Illi- 
nois, and the suggestion was made to the Court 
by the Counsel in that case that it involved ques- 
tions of great public interest, and that an emer- 
gency existed. The result was that the decision 
of the Supreme Court was promptly delivered, 
upholding in every respect the constitutionality of 
the Statute. The other factor was the term of the 
loan, including the rate of interest thereon. It was 
the opinion of Honorable Jesse Jones that the 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation was without 
power to approve a loan for a period in excess of 
five years. Following lengthy discussion in this 
city, with Mr. Jones, Mayor Kelly, with the co- 
operation of leading bankers and attorneys, suc- 
ceeded in convincing him that the Reconstruction 
Finance Corporation had the power to make a loan 
for a period of twenty (20) years — a loan for a 
five-year period would have interfered seriously 
with the financial program of the Board of Educa- 
tion. The interest rate was decided upon as 4V2% 
per annum for the reason as stated by Chairman 
Jones : 

"While the bonds which the Reconstruction 
Finance Corporation will take for this loan 
have heretofore been authorized by the school 
board and the city officials at 5 per cent inter- 
est, I find the finances of the city of Chicago 
and the Chicago Board of Education to be in 
such improved condition as to warrant a lower 
interest rate, and accordingly we are authoriz- 
ing this loan at 41/2 per cent." 

And, Whereas, the foregoing summary of the 
manner in which the school loan was accomplished 
is viewed by the City Council as an example of 
the finest type of municipal achievement and 
statesmanship. 

Be It Hereby Resolved, that the City Council 
of the City of Chicago express to Mayor Edward 
J. Kelly its deep admiration and profound appre- 
ciation for his efforts and fruitful energy in 
bringing relief to the public school teachers of 
Chicago and in producing the present splendid 
financial conditions of the schools of the City and 
that the City Council hereby extend to the Mayor, 
in the name of the citizens of Chicago, whom it 
represents, its thanks for his untiring and splen- 
did zeal toward the successful solution of this 
great problem, and 

Be It Further Resolved, that a copy of this 
Resolution be presented to the Mayor, to the Board 
of Education of the City of Chicago and to the 
representative teachers' organizations. 



Adjournment. 

Alderman Cronson thereupon moved that the City 
Council do now adjourn. 

The motion prevailed and the City Council stood 
adjourned.

The following is said ordinance as passed : 

Ordinance 

Authorizing the issuance of $10,000,000 Refunding 
Bonds of 1935 of the City of Chicago and pro- 
viding for the levy of taxes for payment thereof. 



WHEREAS;, the City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law, its interest bear- 
ing bonds for corporate purposes as hereinafter 
particularly described in the principal amount of 
$10,000,000, which become due January 1, 1935, and 
interest upon said bonds has always been paid at 
maturity thereof, and due to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook 
County and the economic distress prevailing, pay- 
ment of all taxes has been unduly delayed so that 
money for the payment of the principal of said 
bonds in the amount of $10,000,000 as aforesaid is 
not and will not be available on January 1, 1935, 
although at the time said bonds were authorized 
provision was made for the collection of sufficient 
taxes to meet such pasonents; and 

Whereas^ the extension for collection of the 
taxes so provided for the payment of said bonds at 
their maturity on January 1, 1935, will be included 
in the general extension of all taxes for the calen- 
dar year 1933, which is not now and will not be 
completed so that said 1933 taxes can be paid on 
or prior to January 1, 1935, as under existing stat- 
utes, the first installment of taxes to be extended 
for collection for the calendar year 1933 is not due 
until January 1, 1935, and the second installment 
thereof is not due until May 1, 1935, so that under 
no circumstances will money, the proceeds of said 
taxes, be available on January 1, 1935, to pay the 
principal of said bonds; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
corporate purposes and sold and the proceeds re- 
ceived by the City of Chicago and said bonds now 
constitute outstanding legal indebtedness of said 
City and there will be available from other funds 
of the City sufficient money to pay the interest cou- 
pons upon said bonds that becomes due on Janu- 
ary 1, 1935, but not enough money to pay the prin- 
cipal thereof due on that day and in order to take 
care of the principal in the amount of $10,000,000 
due on that day, and to preserve the credit of the 
City of Chicago by providing that such maturing 
bonds may be exchanged for Refunding Bonds to 
be issued in lieu thereof and/or paid from the pro- 
ceeds of the sale of such Refunding Bonds, it is 
necessary that the City of Chicago authorize, issue 
and sell its Refunding Bonds to supply means to 
meet said maturing bonds or authorize and issue 
its Refunding Bonds in a like par amount in place 
of said bonds so maturing on January 1, 1935, 
which can be done at this time to the advantage 
of the City of Chicago because of the prevailing fa- 
vorable conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and in a manner that will 
not increase the indebtedness of said City. 

Now, Therefore, Be It Ordained by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago as follows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the 
principal of maturing bonds of the City of Chicago 
in the amount of $10,000,000 described as follows:

Provision for the Issuance and Sale of Kefunding 

Bonds of 1935 of the Board of Education of 

the City of Chicago ($5,500,000). 

The City Clerk presented the following certified copy 
of a resolution, adopted on August 17, 1934, by the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago: 

Resolution 

Providing for the issue and sale of $5,500,000 Re- 
funding Bonds of 1935, of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity 
with law, its interest bearing bonds for school 
purposes as hereinafter particularly described in 
the principal amount of $5,500,000 which become 
due January 1, 1935, and interest upon said bonds 
has always been paid at maturity thereof, and 
due to delay in fixing the valuation of taxable 
property in and for Cook County and the economic 
distress prevailing, payment of all taxes has been 
unduly delayed so that money for the payment of 
the principal of said bonds in the amount of 
$5,500,000 as aforesaid due on that day is not and 
will not be available on January 1, 1935, although 
at the time said bonds were a,uthorized provision 



August 17, 1934 



SPECIAL MEETING

was made for the collection of sufficient taxes to 
meet such payments; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the 
taxes so provided for the payment of said bonds 
at their maturity on January 1, 1935, will be in- 
cluded in the general extension of all taxes for the 
calendar year 1933, which is not now and will not 
be completed so that said 1933 taxes can be paid 
on or prior to January 1, 1935, as under existing 
statutes, the first installment of taxes to be ex- 
tended for collection for the calendar year 1933 
is not due until January 1, 1935, and the second 
installment thereof is not due until May 1, 1935, 
so that under no circumstances will money, the 
proceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 
1935, to pay the principal of said bonds due Janu- 
ary 1, 1935, in the total amount of $5,500,000 ; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
and said bonds now constitute outstanding legal 
indebtedness of said Board and there will be avail- 
able from funds of the Board sufficient money to 
pay the interest coupons upon said bonds that be- 
come due en January 1, 1935, but not to pay said 
bonds due on January 1, 1935, in the amount of 
$5,500,000, and to preserve the credit of the Board 
of Education of the City of Chicago by providing 
that such maturing bonds may be paid from the 
proceeds of the sale of such Refunding Bonds, 
it is necessary that the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago authorize, issue and sell its Re- 
funding Bonds to supply means to meet said 
maturing bonds which can be done at this time 
to the advantage of the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago because of the prevailing favor- 
able conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and thus make certain 
that the money for payment of such bonds will 
be available on January 1, 1935.

of Education of the City of Chicago, being a 
School District in Cook County, Illinois, as fol-

consideration, a certified copy of a resolution 
adopted on August 17, 1934, by the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago pursuant to author- 
ity of an Act entitled, "An Act to authorize the 
board of education of any school district consti- 
tuted by law in any city having a population ex- 
ceeding five hundred thousand inhabitants to issue 
refunding bonds," enacted at the Third Special 
Session of the 58th General Assembly of the State 
of Illinois and known as Senate Bill Number 9, and 
which resolution reads as follows: 

Resolution 

Providing for the issue and sale of $5,500,000 Re- 
funding Bonds of 1935, of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity 
with law, its interest bearing bonds for school 
purposes as hereinafter particularly described in 
the principal amount of $5,500,000 which become 
due January 1, 1935, and interest upon said bonds 
has always been paid at maturity thereof, and 
due to delay in fixing the valuation of taxable 
property in and for Cook County and the economic 
distress prevailing, payment of all taxes has been 
unduly delayed so that money for the payment of 
the principal of said bonds in the amount of 
$5,500,000 as aforesaid due on that day is not and 
will not be available on January 1, 1935, although 
at the time said bonds were authorized provision 
was made for the collection of sufficient taxes to 
meet such payments; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the 
taxes so provided for the payment of said bonds 
at their maturity on January 1, 1935, will be in- 
cluded in the general extension of all taxes for the 
calendar year 1933, which is not now and will not 
be completed so that said 1933 taxes can be paid 
on or prior to January 1, 1935, as under existing 
statutes, the first installment of taxes to be ex- 
tended for collection for the calendar year 1933 
is not due until January 1, 1935, and the second 
installment thereof is not due until May 1, 1935, 
so that under no circumstances will money, the 
proceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 
1935, to pay the principal of said bonds due Janu- 
ary 1, 1935, in the total amount of $5,500,000; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
and said bonds now constitute outstanding legal 
indebtedness of said Board and there will be avail- 
able from funds of the Board sufficient money to 
pay the interest coupons upon said bonds that be- 
come due on January 1, 1935, but not to pay said 
bonds due on January 1, 1935, in the amount of 
$5,500,000, and to preserve the credit of the Board 
of Education of the City of Chicago by providing 
that such maturing bonds may be paid from the 
proceeds of the sale of such Refunding Bonds, 
it is necessary that the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago authorize, issue and sell its Re- 
fimding Bonds to supply means to meet said 
maturing bonds which can be done at this time 
to the advantage of the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago because of the prevailing favor- 
able conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and thus make certain 
that the money for payment of such bonds will 
be available on January 1, 1935. 



Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Board 
of Education of the City of Chicago, being a 
School District in Cook County, Illinois, as fol- 
lows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the 
principal of bonds of the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago in the amount of $5,500,000 
due January 1, 1935, and described as follows:

Appointment of a Committee to Consider the Pro- 
posed Establishment of a Civic Center. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayoe,| 
Chicago, September 12, 1934. { 

To the City Council of the City of Chicago, Chicago, 
Illinois : 

Gentlemen — The proposed establishment of a 
Municipal Civic Center to house all state and local 
municipal offices has occupied the thought of many 
prominent citizens of Chicago as well as myself for 
some time past. It is immediately apparent that 
the creation of this character of a development (a) 
would go far towards making possible the con- 
solidation of certain functions of government; (b) 
might make possible great savings to the taxpayers 
of our City; (c) would make more convenient and 
accessible to the citizens of Chicago the offices of 
their governmental agencies of the State, County 



and City; (d) would be a definite step in the Chi- 
cago Beautiful Plan. 

Obviously, a venture so gigantic and important 
requires very close study and investigation: 

(1) To determine whether such a proposal has 
merit in view of all of the circumstance" and con- 
ditions confronting us today. 

(2) To determine whether it would be possible 
to finance such a Municipal venture without plac- 
ing one penny additional tax upon any taxpayer 
in our community — I am especially interested in 
this phase of the situation because I am unwilling 
to add to the tremendous burden now placed upon 
the real estate taxpayers and other taxpayers of 
our community as the result of our general prop- 
erty tax. Perhaps, after study and consideration 
of all of the phases entering into the situation, it 
might be possible to construct this great venture 
by self -liquidating means such as leases to be en- 
tered into through proper and legal instrumentali- 
ties with the various corporate entities that would 
obtain substantial good without any additional ex- 
pense to them from such a venture. The rental 
fixed in the leases to the corporate entities could 
possibly amortize the investment over a period of 
years as well as provide operating expenses for the 
property, and in view of the importance of this 
matter, I respectfully request that the Mayor be 
given authority by your Honorable Body to appoint 
a committee consisting of members of the Council, 
representatives of the State and other corporate 
entities involved as well as leading citizens of 
Chicago. 



Respectfully submitted, 



(Signed) 



Edward J. Kei.TuY, 

Mayor. 



In the connection with the foregoing communica- 
tion. Alderman Arvey presented the following reso- 
lution : 

Resolved, That in accordance with his written 
suggestion, the Mayor be and he is hereby au- 
thorized to appoint a committee of fifteen to be 
composed of representatives of the State and mu- 
nicipalities affected by the question, and citizens 
of Chicago to be selected by the Mayor at his dis- 
cretion, for the purpose of investigating and re- 
porting on the subject of the establishment of a 
Civic Center, to house the State and the political 
subdivisions thereof to be located in Chicago. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Arvey moved to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed.

played together with the American flag so that our 
civic pride may be demonstrated in conjunction

ment of public works and buildings of the State of

claimed in Lake Michigan.

State op Illinois,] 
Department of Public Works and Buildings, )■ 

SPRINGFIELD;, AugUSt 9, 1934.) 

Hon. Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chicago, Chicago, 
III. 

My dear Mayor Kelly — Since receipt of your let- 
ter of February 7 applying for approval by the 
State of Illinois of plans for the construction of a 
stone-filled bulkhead in Lake Michigan for airport 
purposes, we have made careful study of the 
matter. 

It is the considered judgment of this department 
that the construction of an airport in Lake Michi- 
gan at this location, and in this manner, does not 
preserve or beautify the public waters of the State 
of Illinois, and that it would be an unwarranted 
encroachment into Lake Michigan without commen- 
surate benefits to the public. 

For that reason approval of the State of Illinois 
will be denied. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Robert Kingery, 

RK SD Director. 



Proposed Creation of a Chicago Community Chest, 
Supported by Proceeds of Tag Days, Etc. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was referred to the 
Committee on Tag Days: 

Office of the Mayor, ^ 
Chicago, September 12, 1934.^ 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am greatly disturbed over the in- 
ability of the several groups seeking participation 
in the annual tag day of September to arrive at a 
harmonious decision for the carrying on of the tag 
day of 1934. 

It is a matter of keen regret that in the carry- 
ing on of so noble a work as that in which these 
several organizations are engaged, namely, the 
ministering to the poor and needy, bearing in mind 
the great sacrifice of the time, money and energy 
made by the fine men and women who conduct the 
activities of these organizations, that discord, dis- 
sension and differences should have arisen which 
hamper and obstruct smooth functioning. 

I am hopeful that your committee on tag days 
and the several organizations involved in the con- 
troversy will be able to find a middle ground upon 
which all can stand in a united effort to make this 
tag day an orderly one, a dignified one, and one 
which will be productive of the most benefits. 



It is my hope that upon the completion of this tag 
day that your committee on tag days will give im- 
mediate consideration to a plan whereby there may 
be created a Chicago Community Chest, which will 
be supported by the proceeds of tag days and similar 
activities and which will be distributed to deserv- 
ing organizations of the city whose work is out- 
standing and helpful. The establishment and main- 
tenance of such a fund would give every citizen 
of Chicago an opportunity to participate in the 
activities of those organizations receiving help 
from the Community Chest and provide an equit- 
able method of distributing the moneys supplied 
by the citizens by means of tag days and similar 
affairs. 

I appeal especially to the organizations involved 
in the controversy to be tolerant and lenient and 
remember the good name of Chicago and work sin- 
cerely and courageously to arrive at a harmonious 
settlement of the disputes and differences so that 
on this tag day a solid front may be presented in 
order to attain the objective of all of these organi- 
zations, namely, to obtain money with which to 
help those so badly in need of help. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith for your con- 
sideration communication from the secretary of the 
West Central Association, dated September 1, 1934, 
commending the proposal before the City Council for 
a general change in the names of certain streets 
throughout the city. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



West Central Association,! 
Chicago, September 1, 1934.^ 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, City of Chicago, 
City Hall, Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Mayor Kelly — While this Association has 
gone on record as against the changing of street 
names where there is no economic necessity for, nor 
advantage in such change, and is very loathe to 
even seem to be a party to such changes, it believes 
that in the present proposal before the City Coun- 
cil, for a general change in the names of certain 
streets throughout the City of Chicago in the in- 
terest of clarity and uniformity, economic ends 
justify the action. 

It is estimated that many hundreds of thousands 
of dollars are lost annually through the miscarriage 
of mail due to similar street names. Much inconven- 



ience and economic loss is entailed upon strangers 
within the city, v/ho are confused by similar names, 
by broken streets, or by sections of a street which 
are off the general alignment of that street. 

We believe that in the present proposal great 
care has been exercised to advocate changes which 
have the least economic disadvantage and the 
greatest offsetting economic advantages. 

We bespeak the earnest consideration of Your 
Honor and of the City Council of Chicago to this 
proposed step in the simplification of the Chicago 
street name system. 

Respectfully yours, 

Charles Snyder^

vard (S.A. Route 55). 

West Bryn Mawr Avenue was designated from 
Central Avenue instead of Elston Avenue in order 
to connect with State Aid Route 138 at Central 
Avenue. 

Approval has been withheld on West Division 
Street from North Austin Avenue to North Homan 
Avenue as this is a duplicate location of another 
arterial street. 

West Erie Street was designated from Halsted 
Street to North Clark Street in order to make con- 
nections with two other arterial streets. 

That portion of Milwaukee Avenue from Augusta 
Street to Elston Avenue has been included in the 
arterial street system because this is only a tem- 
porary route for S.B.I. Route 54, and we feel the 
continuity of this street should not be broken. 

South Narragansett Avenue has been designated 
to terminate at Archer Avenue instead of 51st 
Street in order to connect with the State Aid Route 



on Archer Avenue. Otherwise, this street would 
dead end at 51st Street. 

East and West 47th Street was designated from 
Cicero Avenue instead of the corporate limits as 
we feel that this portion of the street has little 
importance from a traffic standpoint. 

East and West 71st Street was designated from 
Crawford Avenue instead of South Cicero Avenue 
as it is our understanding that between Cicero 
Avenue and Crawford Avenue, West 71st Street 
will fall within the property of the clearing rail- 
road yards, and therefore, it would be impossible 
to use this portion of 71st Street. 

Approval has been withheld on East 83rd Street 
from South Crawford Avenue to South Birkhoff 
Avenue and South Birkoff Avenue from West 83rd 
Street to South Vincennes Avenue and South Vin- 
cennes Avenue to West 83rd Street extended to 
South Stewart Avenue and West 83rd Street to 
South State Street as our investigation shows that 
traffic is adequately served by 79th Street imme- 
diately to the north and 87th Street immediately 
to the south.

This ordinance provides for the improvement of 
State Bond Issue Route Extensions, State Aid Route 
Extensions and Arterial Streets by the installation 
of traffic control signals, and appropriates $200,- 
000.00 from the Motor Fuel Tax allotment for this 
construction which shall be done either by con- 
tract or by day labor. 

We are not approving that portion of the above 
ordinance which applies to extensions of County 
Highway Routes as there is no provision made in 
the Motor Fuel Tax law for such routes. 

The above ordinance is approved with the un- 
derstanding that the installations shall meet the 
requirements of the Highway Department's code 
covering traffic light installation. 

It is requested that when the plans and specifi- 
cations for the individual projects are submitted 
that section numbers be assigned, and that we be 
advised as to whether the construction is to be 
done by contract or by day labor. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Ernst Lieberman, 

Chief Highway Engineer.

TAG DAY. 



Direction for the Issuance of a Permit to the Chicago 

Associated Charities to Hold a Tag Day on 

September 17, 1934. 

The Committee on Tag Days submitted a report 
recommending that a permit be issued to the Chicago 
Associated Charities to hold a tag day on the streets 
of Chicago on Monday, September 17, 1934. 

Alderman Rowan moved to concur in said report. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen pres- 
ent to defer consideration of said report for final 
action thereon to the next regular meeting, and the 
question being put, 

The motion prevailed (Alderman Moreland re- 
quested that he be recorded as voting "No"). 

The following is said report as adopted: 

Chicago, September 12, 1934. 

To the President and Members of the City CovMcil: 

Gentlemen — Your Committee on Tag Days, who 
have had under consideration the matter of a Tag 
Day which was granted by the City Council, to be 
known as the Miscellaneous Tag Day, and to be 
held on September 17, 1934, respectfully presents 
the following report: 

On July 11, 1934, at the request of the Tag 
Day Committee, the City Council designated Sep- 
tember 17th to be known as Miscellaneous Tag 
Day, and in connection therewith we wish to state 
that a controversy has arisen among the members 
of the Chicago Federated Charities, which organ- 
ization has enjoyed the privilege of conducting 
a Tag Day for the past several years. This con- 
troversy seems to have originated because of the 
fact that some two years ago application for ad- 
mission to the Chicago Federated Charities was 
made by several charitable organizations and was 
refused because of the claim made that the mem- 
bership of the parent organization was large 
enough, and for the further reason that the rules 
of the Federated Charities required that the ap- 
plicant organization must have a deficit of at 
least $2,500.00 a year. 



These rejected organizations, at that time, re- 
ported their grievances to the City Council, which, 
in turn, ordered the Federated Charities to accept 
them as members. 

Then, some time in the early part of 1934, the 
Chicago Federated Charities adopted a rule pro- 
viding that after a certain date (in the early part 
of the year 1934) all members were to be en- 
dorsed by the Chicago Association of Commerce. 
This, no doubt the officers knew, would reduce 
the number of participating organizations by over 
one-half, thereby giving the remainder of the 
members the monopoly of the proceeds of the Tag 
Day. 

Our investigation further discloses that the affili- 
ated organizations were directed to get the ap- 
proval of the Council of Social Agencies of Chicago. 
One of their rules seems to be that it is neces- 
sary, in order to be endorsed, to show that ex- 
perienced social service workers are employed. 
This naturally would put many of the organizations 
under heavy expense, when, as a matter of fact, 
many of them now have absolutely no overhead 
whatever. 

We further find that most every one of the or- 
ganizations unable to meet these requirements 
were well supervised by either the Jewish Charities 
of Chicago or by the Catholic Charities of Chi- 
cago, or by some other parent organization, and 
this evidence has been furnished the Committee In 
writing. 

Confronted with all of these facts, your Commit- 
tee on Tag Days notified all members affiliated with 
the Chicago Federated Charities to meet with the 
Committee for the purpose of discussing and en- 
deavoring to iron out to the satisfaction of all the 
difficulties that existed in the organization and to 
reorganize the group for the purpose of tagging 
on September 17th. 

In line with this idea a meeting was called for 
Wednesday, July 25, 1934, at 10:30 A. M., to be 
held in the Finance Committee Rooms in the City 
Hall, at which all organizations were invited to be 
present. Such organizations as were invited first 
were compelled to submit a certified public ac- 
countant's report of their financial condition, which 
was carefully scrutinized by your Committee. Up- 
wards of fifty of such reports were examined and 
on the day of the meeting forty-six organizations 
reported at the roll-call and your Committee 
pleaded with these organizations for harmony for 
charity's sake and that no politics be permitted 
to be injected into any of the proceedings or ac- 
tivities in connection with this Tag Day. 

This group, after your Committee had with- 
drawn, proceeded to elect officers. Mr. Richert, 
of the Committee on Finance Staff, supervised the 
election of Chairman. Mrs. Holzman and Mrs. 
Sheery being put in nomination, the result v/as 22 
votes for Mrs. Holzman and 24 votes for Mrs. 
Sheery, Mrs. Sheery being, therefore, elected as 
Chairman. At this point, Mr. Richert withdrew 
from the meeting and the newly elected Chairman 
proceeded to the election of the balance of the 
officers of the organization. 

After the election of the various officers, the 
group proceeded to receive suggestions for a name 
and it was finally decided that the organization 
should be known as the Chicago Associated 
Charities.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



September 12, 1934 



Shortly after the election of officers your ConiT 
mittee on Tag Days received notice that approxi- 
mately sixteen charitable organizations had with- 
drawn from the Chicago Associated Charities and 
that they would stand by as members of the Chi- 
cago Federated Charities. 

Upon four different occasions these organiza- 
tions which had withdrawn were respectfully in- 
vited by your Committee on Tag Days to rejoin 
and participate in the Tag Day to be held Septem- 
ber 17th. On Monday, September 10th, they were 
again invited and a meeting was held, in which 
approximately ten persons participated, represent- 
ing the various organizations that had withdrawn. 
At this meeting the members of your Committee 
pleaded most earnestly with these persons to join 
hands with those who are to tag on September 
17th, and not to tag on the day which these dis- 
satis"fied organizations had designated as their Tag 
Day in violation of the city ordinances, namely 
Thursday, September 13th. They absolutely re- 
fused to participate, but reiterated the statement 
that "they would tag permit or no permit" on 
Thursday, September 13th. They were further in- 
formed that their communication addressed to the 
City Council, requesting a permit to tag on Thurs- 
day, September 13th, would no doubt be presented 
to the City Council and, under the rules of that 
Body, referred to the Committee on Tag Days, 
but all to no avail. 

Your Committee on Tag Days, therefore, re- 
spectfully recommends that a permit be issued to 
the Chicago Associated Charities to hold a Tag 
Day on the streets of Chicago on Monday, Septem- 
ber 17th, 1934, and that, should rain interfere, the 
permit apply to the following day. 

Appended hereto is a list of the organizations 
which your Committee has determined shall be per- 
mitted to participate in the Miscellaneous Tag Day 
heretofore authorized by Your Honorable Body to 
be held on September 17, 1934. 



Respectfully submitted,

The Alton Railroad Co. : Request for Approval by the 

City Council of an Instrument of Vacation 

of Certain Alleys. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation from The Alton Railroad Company, which was, 
together with the instrument and plat transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Local In- 
dustries, Streets and Alleys: 

The Alton Railroad Company,) 
Chicago, September 17, 1934. i[ 

To the Honorable Peter J. Brady, City Clerk, City 
Hall, Chicago, III.: 

Dear Sir — Application was recently made to the 
Commissioner of Buildings for a permit to erect 
a bulk oil station on property of The Alton Rail- 
road Company, at the southeast corner of 31st and 
Wood streets, Chicago, Illinois. The permit was 
refused by the Commissioner due to the fact that 
the proposed station was to be partly erected on 
property designated as alleys on the City's maps, 
which, according to the records, had not been va- 
cated. 

The property on which the alleys in question 
are located is described as follows: 

Sublots 33 to 74, both inclusive, in Stinson's 
resubdivision of the southwesterlv half of lot 
37 and of lots 38 and 39 and lots 45 to 77 in- 
clusive, in Stinson's subdivision of Blocks 1, 2 
and 10 in the Canal Trustees subdivision of the 
east half of Section 31, Township 39, North, 
Range 14, East of the Third Principal Meridian, 

and are shown on the blue print which is enclosed. 

The facts which have now been developed indi- 
cate that the Chicago and Alton Railway Com- 
pany, a predecessor of The Alton Railroad Com- 
pany, acquired title to these lots in October and 
November, 1903. Prior to that time the various 
fee simple owners of these lots gave to the Chi- 
cago and Alton Railway Company an instrument 
which is also enclosed, whereby they vacated the 
alleys located on this property in accordance with 
the provisions of an act to revise the law in rela- 
tion to plats, dated March 21, 1874 (Callahan's 
Illinois Statutes, Chapter 109, Section 6). 



2796 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



September 19, 1934 



It appears, however, that this instrument of va- 
cation has never been filed of record and that the 
alleys in question have never been marked vacated, 
as provided in Section 8 of said act. 

The records of The Alton Railroad Company and 
of its predecessors indicate that the lots in ques- 
tion have never been built upon and that these 
alleys have never been actually constructed nor 
used by the former owners. Also that the alleys 
are stub-ended on the east and south ends against 
the right-of-way and embankment of The Alton 
Railroad Company and have never been and are not 
now open to through use by the public. 

In view of these facts I request that you present 
this letter, together with the attached instrument 
and blueprint, to the City Council at its next meet- 
ing for its approval as provided in Section 6 of the 
above-mentioned act, so that the instrument may 
then be filed of record and the alleys marked "va- 
cated" on the City's maps. 

If the City Council desires any further informa- 
tion on the subject, I shall be glad to see that it is 
furnished. 

Kindly advise me when I may expect action on 
this matter.

Engineer of the Committee on Railway Terminals, 
beg leave to report and recommend the adoption 
of the following resolution and the publication of 
the accompanying report submitted by the Chicago 
Plan Commission (this recommendation was con- 
curred in by twenty members of the committee, 
with no dissenting votes) : 

Whereas, The existence of railroad passenger 
terminals in the City of Chicago located on prop- 
erty east of the Chicago River and west of State 
street obstructs the logical developm_ent of the 
City and the extension of streets southward from 
the Central Business District; and 

Whereas, The presence of this large area of 
railroad occupied property with the resultant 
absence of streets through the territory and the 
traffic congestion incident thereto is responsible 
for the present blighted area south of the Cen- 
tral Business District; and 

Whereas, The necessity for a solution of the 
railway terminal problem has for a number of 
years been recognized by the City Administra- 
tions and civic organizations as of vital import- 
ance to the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, In an effort to bring about a solu- 
tion of the problem the City and the various 
railroads interested have from time to time prior 
to the year 1933 made studies and submitted re- 
ports and plans all of which failed of adoption 
or resulted in no substantial progress; and 

Whereas, Since these studies have been made, 
conditions have changed to such an extent that 
an entirely new and practical solution of the 
problem is possible which is set forth in the re- 
port to this Committee on December, 1933, en- 
titled "The Railway Passenger Terminal Prob- 
lem at Chicago"; and 

Whereas, After careful consideration this re- 
port has been enthusiastically approved by the 
Chicago Plan Commission; and 

Whereas, The report was duly presented to 
the various railroads immediately after its pub- 
lication; and 

Whereas, At a meeting of this Committee 
held on January 12, 1934, representatives of 
these railroads discussed the plan fully, but up 
to the present time no favorable action has been 
taken by them; and 

Whereas, It is of vital importance to the 
proper development of the City of Chicago and 
convenience of its citizens that some action be 
taken at the earliest possible date; and 



Whereas, The consolidation of the railroads 
in a passenger terminal at Randolph street (as 
recommended in the report) will result in econ- 
omies of operation to the railroads and reduce 
capital expenditures and provide much needed 
employment for a great number of men; and 

Whereas, The construction of large projects 
is encouraged by the President of the United 
States; and 

Whereas, By virtue of an act of Congress, a 
Federal Coordinator of Transportation was ap- 
pointed to bring about a greater cooperation 
between the railroads in order to reduce ex- 
penses caused by the duplication of services and 
facilities; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Chairman and Engineer 
of the Railway Terminal Committee in coopera- 
tion with the Corporation Counsel be and they 
are hereby authorized and directed to prepare a 
petition directed to Joseph B. Eastman, Fed- 
eral Coordinator of Transportation, setting forth 
the existing conditions with respect to the rail- 
way passenger terminal situation at Chicago, 
the advantages and economies to the railroads 
and the general civic benefit that would result 
from the location of a consolidated passenger 
terminal at Randolph street. The petition 
should also request the Federal Coordinator of 
Transportation to take such action as he may 
deem expedient to bring about the consolidation 
of the several railroad passenger terminals in 
Chicago in one consolidated terminal at Ran- 
dolph street in accordance with the recommen- 
dations contained in the report to this Commit- 
tee, December, 1933, entitled "The Railway 
Passenger Terminal Problem at Chicago"; and 
be it further 

Resolved, That the Chairman of the Railway 
Terminal Committee, together with the Mayor 
of Chicago, request the Federal Coordinator of 
Transportation to hold a public hearing at an 
early date at which may be presented the peti- 
tion and such information as is deemed neces- 
sary in connection with the railroad terminal 
passenger problem at Chicago; and be it further 

Resolved, That an invitation be extended to 
the Chicago Plan Commission, the Association 
of Commerce, and other civic organizations to 
be present at such public hearing in order that 
the Federal Coordinator of Transportation may 
be fully informed of the importance to the City 
of Chicago of the solution of this problem. 

Respectfully submitted,

Chicago Plan Commission,] 
Chicago, May 8, 1934. ( 

Mr. James Simpson, Chairman, and the Executive 
Committee, Chicago Plan Commission: 

Gentlemen — ^We have made a careful study of 
the report entitled, "The Railway Passenger Ter- 
minal Problem at Chicago," sent us by the City 
Council Committee on Railway Terminals on Janu- 
ary 15, 1934; and respectfully submit the follow- 
ing report relative thereto. 

The' letter which accompanied the Council Com- 
mittee's report asks for an expression of opinion 
by the Chicago Plan Commission as to the desir- 
ability of consolidating all the south side railway 
terminal passenger facilities in a station fronting 
on Randolph street east of Michigan avenue. 

The subject of improved railroad terminal facili- 
ties at Chicago has been given long and serious 
consideration by the Chicago Plan Commission. 
The Chicago Plan report of the Commercial Club, 
issued in 1908, recognized the necessity and de- 
sirability of having railroad passenger stations lo- 
cated close to the city's central business district. 
When that plan was made there was every reason 
to anticipate a marked expansion of Chicago's loop 
district toward the south. Therefore the plan sug- 
gested the development of Congress street as the 
main east-and-west axis of the city, and indicated 
Halsted street as the probable western boundary of 
the city's central business district. In conformity 
thereto, the plan suggested areas along Canal street 
on the west and Roosevelt road on the south as 
being suited to railroad terminal development. 

The four passenger terminals and the numerous 
freight houses and terminal facilities located in the 
area south of Van Buren street between Lake 
Michigan and the south branch of the Chicago 
River have proved, however, to be an insurmount- 
able barrier to the southward development of Chi- 
cago's central business district, and have forced 
such expansion to take place northward. This 
northerly movement has been further stimulated 
by the improvement of Michigan avenue, La Salle 
street and Wacker drive. 

The terminal committee's report contains a fine 
historical account of the development of Chicago 



as a great railroad center; and Drawing No, 1, en- 
titled "Railroad Development, Central Business 
District, Chicago," shows at a glance why the south 
side railroad situation has proved to be such an 
obstacle to the normal southerly expansion of the 
city's central business area. 

This map shows how the railroads occupy al- 
most a square mile of area just south of the loop 
district and prevent all but four of the north-and- 
south streets from extending through. The Chi- 
cago Plan Commission has always urged the open- 
ing of some half-dozen streets through this south 
side terminal area; and the tremendous importance 
of these openings to the entire southern portion of 
the city cannot be over-emphasized. 

The straightening of the south branch of the 
Chicago River was the first step which had to be 
taken before these streets could be opened. The 
river straightening is an accomplished fact, but no 
further progress can be made so long as the rail- 
road passenger and freight facilities on the south 
side remain as they are. In common with the Rail- 
way Terminal Committee and other interested gov- 
ernmental agencies, individuals and organizations, 
the Chicago Plan Commission has for years been 
urging a rehabilitation of the south side terminal 
facilities. To date no appreciable progress has 
been made. 

When the so-called Lake Front Ordinance was 
under consideration, the Chicago Plan Commission 
participated in the discussions and considerations 
of the subject. The ordinance as passed in 1919 
was approved by the Chicago Plan Commission be- 
cause this ordinance provided: 

1. For the carrying out of the Lake Front 
Improvement, which was one of the main feat- 
ures of the Chicago Plan. 

2. Because it provided for the elimination of 
steam engines on the lake front north of Roose- 
velt road. 

3. Because it provided a location for a pass- 
enger terminal sufficient in size to accommodate 
all of the railroads now maintaining their ter- 
minals in the area between State street and the 
Chicago River, and would therefore make pos- 
sible the removal of these stations and the 
reclamation of the large area of railroad-occu- 
pied territory for commercial purposes, thereby 
accomplishing the purpose outlined in the Chi- 
cago Plan. 

The plan presented in the report now under con- 
sideration provides for a passenger terminal at 
Randolph street to accommodate all of the railroads 
now using the Grand Central, La Salle Street and 
Dearborn Stations. This plan possesses all of the 
merits of the Roosevelt road lake front station 
endorsed by the Chicago Plan Commission in 1919; 
and, in addition, the Randolph street location has 
many superior advantages. 

The Randolph street location conforms to the 
changes which have occurred in the central busi- 
ness district of Chicago since the passage of the 
1919 Lake Front ordinance. 

Prior to the passage of the lake front ordinance 
the Randolph street location was considered; but 
at that time all of the property owned by the Illi- 
nois Central Railroad north of Randolph street 
was required for the accommodation of its freight

business. The transfer of the railroad perishable 
business from the territory north of Randolph 
street, and changes in the handling of L. C. L. 
freight have had the effect of reducing the areas 
required by the railroad for its freight business. 
Today there is ample room for the construction of 
the Randolph street passenger terminal without 
in any way encroaching upon the areas required 
for the freight business of the Illinois Central 
Railroad. 

It seems to us that the next consideration in 
connection with the suggested consolidation of the 
passenger terminal facilities of the several south 
side railroads in a union station at Randolph street, 
is this: 

Will the proposed Randolph street passenger 
terminal facilitate opening streets through the 
railroad area south of the loop district? 

It is our judgment that it will. Were the pass- 
enger facilities moved from this district, it would 
then be possible to consolidate the freight facili- 
ties of the several railroads and confine them to 
the area between Clark street and the straightened 
channel of the river. This would make it simpler, 
easier and less costly to open Dearborn street 
southwards; and would permit the street to be 
opened at the normal street grade. Likewise, since 
the freight facilities are already farther south 
than the passenger facilities, the other streets in- 
cluded in the opening program could be opened at 
normal grades for a greater distance southwards 
than would otherwise be possible. 

Moreover, the removal of the passenger facilities 
would release large areas of land for diversified 
building development. The construction of new 
buildings throughout this district would intensify 
the demand for opening the streets, and should 
bring about their extension at an earlier date than 
might otherwise be the case. 

Furthermore, the type and character of freight 
houses is such that they interpose no great diffi- 
culty to street extension, particularly of a viaduct 
type. Indeed, the proposed opening of streets 
through the south side railroad area and the re- 
habilitation of the freight facilities and their com- 
pression into a smaller area than at present, can 
be worked out to mutual advantage. Conditions 
can be still further improved by following the sug- 
gestion outlined in the report of the Terminal Com- 
mittee which deals with the handling of less than 
carload freight. 

Therefore we feel that a consolidated passenger 
terminal at Randolph street east of Michigan ave- 
nue can truly be said to possess the advantage of 
facilitating and bringing to earlier realization the 
long-hoped-for opening of streets through the 
south side railroad area, with consequent direct 
benefits to the entire southern section of Chicago 
and resultant indirect gains to the community as 
a whole. 

Another point to be determined in considering 
the desirability of the proposed Randolph Street 
passenger terminal, is this: 

What will be the general effect upon Chicago's 
central business district of concentrating all the 
present south side passenger facilities in a single 
station at the northeast corner of the loop? 



Obviously the first effect will be a marked change 
in traffic movement upon downtown streets. At 
present vehicle traffic is divided between four south 
side stations. This separates the traffic somewhat, 
but consolidating these four depots into a single 
station would eliminate all the present interchange 
traffic movement between the several depots. 

Changing the location of the terminal would 
likewise change the routes used by passenger ve- 
hicles going to and from the station. It would 
materially relieve street traffic conditions in the 
southern portion of the loop. Traffic to and from 
a Randolph street passenger terminal, coming from 
or going to either the north side or the south side, 
would use the outer lake front park boulevards or 
widened Michigan avenue. La Salle street or South 
Parkway, and therefore would have little if any 
reason to pass over loop thoroughfares. Traffic to 
and from the west side, northwest side and south- 
west side would find it easier ^ quick and more 
convenient to follow Market street and Wacker 
drive than to penetrate into and through the loop. 

The location of a passenger terminal at Ran- 
dolph street would fit in with the present trend of 
business development. A station at this location 
could be operated in a manner that would entirely 
remove the objections to the present passenger 
terminals south of the central business district. 

A passenger terminal located at Randolph street 
would not in any way interfere with the future 
development of the city as outlined in the Chicago 
Plan. It would be below the uniform street level, 
and therefore could not interfere with any streets 
to be opened or extended over the terminal area. 
It would fit in with the major traffic arteries from 
the north, south and west divisions of the city 
which have been approved and sponsored by the 
Chicago Plan Commission. 

Vehicular traffic from all sections of the city 
could reach this terminal without encountering 
traffic congestion in the central business district. 
The plan outlined in the report for a mezzanine 
level surrounding the station provides for the ac- 
commodation of vehicular traffic destined to and 
from the station. This provision would have the 
effect of removing the street traffic congestion 
which is always existent at railway passenger ter- 
minals where only one street level is available for 
service to the station. 

Therefore it seems reasonable to conclude that 
the general effect upon loop street traffic would be 
beneficial, particularly as the proposed location is 
off to one side of the central business district at 
its northeastern corner, and much of the traffic to 
and from it could avoid loop streets altogether. 
This is not only impossible now, due to the sep- 
arated locations of the four existing south side 
passenger terminals, but the presence of large 
freight station facilities makes the situation even 
worse. This is because of the fact that under 
existing conditions passenger traffic vehicles and 
freight traffic vehicles must all use the same 
streets, with resultant congestion and delayed 
movement. 

The proposed location of mail and express fa- 
cilities south of Roosevelt road would result in a 
large reduction in traffic congestion in the central 
business district. This would be in accord with the 
general purpose expressed in the Chicago Plan of 
diverting this class of traffic to the street circula- 
tory system surrounding the inner quadrangle.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



2807 



It is highly desirable that the suggestions con- 
tained in the terminal committee's report for the 
removal of a large portion of the less than carload 
freight facilities in the area south of the central 
business district; and for the handling of the major 
portion of L. C. L. freight at outside concentration 
points, be followed. 

Still another effect upon Chicago's central busi- 
ness district may be expected to result from the 
construction of a consolidated station on Randolph 
street to serve the passenger requirements of the 
seventeen railroads that now use the Grand Cen- 
tral, La Salle Street, Dearborn and Central Sta- 
tions. This is the improvement that would result 
from covering up the large railroad yards between 
Grant Park and the river and east of Michigan 
avenue. 

Today these yards constitute a blot upon Chi- 
cago's fine "front yard" park development. Their 
concealment by a development of the air rights 
above them would be an early result of the build- 
ing of a union passenger station fronting upon 
Randolph street, supplemented by the construction 
of the various new streets provided for or pro- 
posed in that area. City and park board ordi- 
nances call for a new outer drive boulevard 140 
feet wide, a new Randolph Street viaduct 128 feet 
wide, a new Wacker Drive viaduct 112 feet wide, 
and new viaducts in South Water street. Lake 
Street, Beaubien court and several north-and-south 
streets to be built as part of any air rights de- 
velopment that may be carried out above the rail- 
road tracks. 

Incidentally it might be pointed out that an in- 
direct but by no means insignificant benefit which 
Chicago would derive from having all passenger 
trains use the Illinois Central right-of-way as pro- 
posed in the Randolph Street terminal plan, is the 
better impression which arriving visitors would 
get of Chicago by virtue of coming into the heart 
of the city along a beautiful lake front park in- 
stead of through blighted districts, as most of the 
passenger trains now do. 

One further question remains which is of vital 
importance to Chicago, although it concerns the 
railroad companies most directly. That is: 

Will the proposed Randolph street site serve 
the railroads and the traveling public as well or 
better than a passenger terminal at some other 
location ? 

The Randolph Street Terminal site is in close 
proximity to hotels and shopping districts, and is 
more centrally located with respect to the central 
business district than a
